When you're offering to share information with Teh Intarwubs, you're demonstrating that you can't be trusted with information.


Well, true enough, since his flickr photography page has the real location names to go with the pics Im guessing he doesn't care who sees it

Well, when I say happy to share that doesnt mean me just dropping it to people.


Okay, so how are you going to figure out who is trustworthy? Number of spots visited? Amount of years exploring? General reputation? Not a single one of those factors is a sure fire way to determine if someone is going to respect a place. And you don't know who that person is friends with either. I've known a lot of people who I thought to be good enough to share with indiscriminately. I've almost always been burned. And there are probably people who feel the same way about me too. Usually when friendships end you start to second guess things like that.

It doesn't really matter anyway. It's all about getting to things early these days. Almost anything that gets popular and ruined has been someone's "secret" for years. And those people probably wouldn't be sharing anything good that would make it to your map anyway.

I don't mean to sound like a bitter asshole, but it's sorta hard when you are one. At least online anyway. Another reason why you can't always go by someone's online alter-ego when trying to figure out who they really are.

All of this is true, I had a spot in Missisippi that I gave out an now it's completely trashed. I'm not sure how I would figure out who is trustworthy; after thinking about this for some time my map will remain private. I'v always loved looking at your photos and I respect how discreet you are with your locations.

Thanks, I really appreciate that. For what it's worth I'm definitely responsible for a handful of places being ruined though. Not that I went and said anything about them, or did anything myself, but just posting a photo of something can be it's downfall. I try much harder than I probably should sometimes, but realistically I can find it anyone can.

an example id like to make (nothing because of you) the theater at a certain state hospital in new england had a bunch of attention recently. An older example is the autopsy theater in a state hospital that is now being turned into federal offices. For the record, a lot of the campus of this hospital is still abandoned.

I definitely feel partially responsible for the first one. Someone commented what state it was in and I didn't remove the comment right away. That paired with the description I gave the photo made it really easy to find. A few loud mouths went after that and it was all over. A ton of people had gone before me, and had been for years. But the Insta crowd hadn't found it yet. If I lived closer I'd have sealed it myself. Its too late now though. Live and learn.

I sorta rode the wave to the second spot you mentioned, and despite being pretty out of character I actually asked a local for info on that. So I wasn't going to make them regret telling me. Got a friend out of that too, so no regrets.

I was in Boston over the weekend and I decided what was left of NSH and that theater weren't with the trip. I went to WSH and a certain power plant and they were well worth it. Either way, I love seeing you on my Flickr feed and those churches you visit are incredible. Keep it up!
